Studio Dumbar is an international agency with a Dutch heritage.
Design is at the heart of what we do. We describe our work as ‘visual branding, online branding’, meaning we create every visible expression of a brand or organization — offline and online. This involves expertise in strategy, communication, branding and process-management.
It is in our nature to look for the pure essence — in the people we work with, and the projects we take on. It’s a mentality that helps us to build a great team and achieve extraordinary results, no matter how complex or demanding a project might be.
We are located in Rotterdam, Shanghai and Seoul. Our international scope is reflected in our teams, with an average of seven nationalities in Rotterdam alone. Our portfolio is equally diverse, encompassing work for a variety of clients both large and small — from business and government to cultural and non–profit.
Studio Dumbar attracts talented individuals from around the world. Over the years, this has led to an endless run of remarkable personalities and projects.
The studio is led by Liza Enebeis (Creative Director), Karmen Kekic (Client Service Director) and Tom Dorresteijn (CEO and Strategy). Based in Rotterdam, they have a close working relationship with Joost Roozekrans and Zou Zhengfang in Shanghai (established 2005), and Simon Park in Seoul (established 2012).
Studio Dumbar’s colourful history began in 1977 when Gert Dumbar founded the company in The Hague.
